About This Quiz

There are many dog breeds out there, for sure. But there are so many common ones familiar around the world that everyone could easily name at least a dozen of such dogs. Try it, we dare you!

Dogs come in all shapes and sizes. Depending on their characteristics and personalities, these dogs could also have varying roles in the households where they belong. There are some families that also like taking care of specific types of dogs. There are also those families who love any kind of dog! And there are those who try to diversify and keep different breeds at the same time, but with some commonality (such as the animals' sizes or kind of fur). 

Finding the perfect dog breed for a specific person's temperament is indeed a challenge for anyone. Just because they are dogs doesn't automatically mean that they will be welcomed with open arms in a household. Plus there are also considerations about how to maintain their upkeep. Bigger dogs obviously need bigger surroundings, while the smaller ones could be welcome anywhere inside the house.

So, if you think you can ace this dog quiz, give it a shot and have fun!
